Barneys Gives Transgender Models Shine in Spring Campaign


Gorgeously shot by Bruce Weber, Barneys New York’s spring campaign dubbed “Brothers, Sisters, Sons and Daughters” features 17 transgender male and female models as well as their personal stories. Barneys partnered with the National Center for Transgender Equality and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center for the project and will donate 10 percent of sales on February 11 to the organizations. “Dennis Freedman, creative director of Barneys, said the desire to use transgender models had ‘a lot to do with the realization that such extraordinary progress has been made in the last few years for the lesbian, gay and bisexual community, but it’s striking how the transgender community has been left behind. It’s disturbing and upsetting to see that’,” WWD reported.
